Okay this might sound strange and I'm not really complaining but Comrade hardly ever barks. I mean he CAN bark (I've heard him a few times over the last few weeks) but he doesn't seem to bark as much as other dogs of been in contact with. Like my sisters dog Jet (who lives next door) barks all the time, too much, but even when he barks comrade doesn't. And when he play fights with Jet, hes silent as well... maybe a few snuffly sounds. The only time I've heard him recently was because there was a balloon on his bed and he'd seen one bust the day before so he was barking at it. How often do your dogs bark?
